So I just installed an ASUS B350 Plus, along with a Ryzen.. but now when I boot from my old HDD or my USB windows media, it just gets to the windows loading screen, the dots will do a tiny spin and then completely freeze.. I've tried turning off secure boot.. any other suggestions?
Help!

A little more info is needed. Type of HD, what O/S are you loading? (i.e. Win 10 Pro 64 bit). Where did you get the ISO you are loading the O/S from? Have you used that current combo to successfully load the O/S before?
Sorry for the 20 questions, just trying to narrow stuff down. Can you get something like MediCat or a Win PE to load (No worries if that makes no sense)

i just built a new computer, had similar issue
it turned out to be the memory
trying to run at the highest rated speed made the memory unstable, so i switched to the basic default setting, about 2/3 of the highest speed, and it works just fine; i'll get some memory that works with the motherboard someday, you have to check the compatibility list for each different memory you are shopping for, afaik (?)
also, perhaps a support forum for your motherboard may help you find the right memory
if that is the problem
try changing the memory settings, see what happens

I am starting to think this may be some random bug in Windows 10 possibly v.1903. The reason I say that is I have seen a few systems now behave like yours is. Nothing short of a fresh install of Win 10 fixes that and I have tried everything I could think of to throw at them. When you ask the system owner for info leading up to the problem, well you rarely get a straight answer. I almost always find those fix you for free programs files in the program files folder but it seems these days the majority of people would rather try to fix their system themselves. Never works but that doesn't stop them. I don't think that's the root cause of this problem and it seems so random right now.

So after some more investigation it turns that people admit it or not have been manually powering down their systems. I am not sure if they are aware of massive updates Windows 10 is doing. Some have reported their system froze (endless loop) during updates and after powering down would stall while system was loading and this seems to be the virtual common factor. Windows 10 seems to have problems with some video drivers but your guess is as good as mine. Just reporting what I have heard and seen. Not sure what version they were upgrading since their systems required a fresh install but that does clear up the problem. I do load v.1903 to avoid big updates.
